Diabetic-friendly energy drinks?

Diabetic-friendly energy drinks?

Are you a sportsperson with diabetes? Do you have any advice to share with Mike about energy drinks?

Good day,

I am a Type 2 diabetic who enjoys cycling. I’m looking for advice on energy drinks or sports drinks etc that are diabetic-friendly.

Just drinking water doesn’t help when the energy dips…

Thank you!

– Mike

  1. Hi Mike

    Not sure if its the best for exercising but my go-to is Sugar Free Redbull on nights out, it works like a charm and has no side effects on my sugar levels.

  2. Hi Mike

    I have been using 32Gi Endure for long rides. 32Gi Race in one bottle and the 32Gi Endure in the other bottle on race day.

    The information below is from 32Gi.

    32Gi’s endure range is far more suited to a person suffering from diabetes due to the fact that it doesn’t raise blood sugar significantly. We have done testing on a large range of people who suffer from diabetes and the feedback is extremely positive. Each person can have different symptoms so always test the product properly to see what works best for you. If you are not sure then contact our coach@32Gi.com

    Give it a try and Happy Cycling!!

  3. Hi Mike. I’m a Type 1 who loves mountain biking. My go to energy booster is High5 Sportd Nutrition Zero. Zero sugar and zero caleries. Full of vitamins.

  4. I use High5 Sports nutrition, zero extreme – disolved in my water on long trail runs. No sugar or calories but caffeine for the xtra boost.

  5. Hi, just wanted to find out if it’s possible to reverse diabetes? Is there something like that really?

    1. Hi Patrick!
      It depends what kind of diabetes you have, and when you are diagnosed. If you catch Type 2 diabetes early enough, it’s possible to reverse it with lifestyle changes – a healthy diet and exercise. If it’s more advanced, you will probably need medication (insulin tablets or injections) but there is hope. Type 1 diabetes cannot be reversed. Hope that helps?
